00:00 The concerns of high cholesterol on the keto diet. Does the keto diet raise your cholesterol?
01:00 The purpose of cholesterol in the body
02:30 Cholesterol lab markers to pay attention to. HDL should be above 60. Your LDL particle sizes via the NMR lipid panel test. Triglycerides should be below 100. Then divide your total triglycerides and divide it by your total HDL, you want to see this less than 2.
03:30 If your cholesterol has gone up with keto I encourage you to also get inflammatory markers done such as the A1C, you want this below 5.2. You also want to get a high sensitivity c reactive protein, you want this below 1.0. Homocysteine is another good inflammatory marker, you want this below 7. Lastly you want to look at fasting insulin, you want this in the single digits.
04:15 Will you see a keto cholesterol increase? Maybe. But you will also see your protective HDL markers go up too. Keto diet high ldl cholesterol is not the full picture unless you look at the particle sizes.
🙏 High cholesterol on keto? Don’t be afraid of cholesterol. God made it. You are made up of it.
👇 Here are 4 Purposes of Cholesterol …
1: Cholesterol is the building block for many hormones.
🔥 If you want to burn fat, and feel good, take care of your hormones.
🤬Without adequate cholesterol your sex hormones would be depleted.
2: Cholesterol makes up your cell membrane.
💪 Your cell membrane is the bodyguard of your DNA. It protects it from damage. Did you know that the membrane is made up of protein, fat, and CHOLESTEROL?
🙌 Life begins and ends at the cell membrane.
3: Cholesterol makes up the brain and part of nervous system.
🧠 Our brain is at least 60% fat! When someone calls you a fathead, smile at them and say thanks. 😁
🍼 Breast milk contains saturated fat and cholesterol, helping the baby go in and out of ketosis; this helps the development of the brain.
4: Cholesterol helps make bile and vitamin D.
👏 Bile is SUPER important on the Keto Diet. Bile acts as a detergent to break down fats.
🥴 The number one reason people feel like crap on the keto diet is sluggish bile.
😯 We need cholesterol to make Vitamin D. Vitamin D actually becomes a hormone within the body, particularly a secosteroid hormone.
☀️ What we know as vitamin D is really a precursor to a steroid hormone. It impacts not only our skeletal structure, but also our blood pressure, immunity, mood, brain function and ability to protect ourselves from cancer.
🥩🥥🧀🥑🍳 Don’t be afraid of eating healthy fats like eggs, butter, grass fed beef, coconut oil, and avocados.
🤔 Did you know?
😳 Most people die with heart disease who have normal to low cholesterol, than with high cholesterol!
